What a blood bath at the US Open. Hughes…woof. Conners and Kokrak both made the cut and Kokrak finished in the top 20. I’ll take that. Onto the Punta Cana Championship where it is all about birdies and eagles!
Ruby #1: Hank Lebioda ($6600)– #1 in my rankings for eagles last 24 rounds. The tragic putter of the golf ball but not afraid to go low. I have him ranked 28th last 24 rounds. Lebioda’s worst putting surface is Bermuda. He has gained on approach each of his last 3 tournament appearances. If his Tee to Green game can get back to how it was at the Wyndham he will compete for a top 20 this week. I’m going to hope Lebioda can score this week because I know the bogeys are coming.
Ruby #2: Josh Teater ($6800)– Going back to the Teater well. He ranks extremely high in my overall model and rolling report. He ranks top 20 in Birdies, approach, ball striking, opportunities gained, and tee to green last 12 rounds. Sounds like a good combination to me. This field is obviously not great by any stretch of the imagination. He can compete for a top 20 here.
Ruby #3 Grayson Murray ($6400)– Total Flyer here with this dude. Finished 12th here last year. He has won on tour before and it was an alternate field event. This is essentially an alternate field event. He hasn’t lost on approach in his last 6 tournaments. This is a total GPP play and I wouldn’t play him much just a small exposure. He ranks 5th in the last 12 rounds in my stat model and I’m still trying to figure it out but that is what I get.
Coal: Brandon Hagy ($6900)– No freaking clue where his ownership is coming from. The dude hasn’t gained on approach in 4 tournaments and is coming off losing 6 shots on approach his last tournament. He’s losing putting as well. How he made the cut at Safeway is beyond me but he did finish DFL of those that made the cut. Looks like he had a rough weekend. Can’t play a guy who can’t find an iron right now.
